Our Regional Campuses

We are grateful to have 25 ministry sites throughout Florida, including these six campuses that include residential care facilities.

Fort Myers

The Fort Myers campus, known as our “Southwest Florida Children’s Home,” consists of a more than 5,000-square-foot residence just east of McGregor Baptist Church. The church provided the property; the Royal Palm Baptist Association built and furnished the residence and continues to maintain it; Florida Baptist Children’s Homes provides staff and services.
